New American Promise 28th Amendment Candidate Pledge Signer

Sarah Guzman, Candidate for Santa Fe County Clerk

Ms. Sarah Guzman, Candidate for the Office of the County Clerk for Santa Fe County has become the latest New Mexico candidate for elected office to demonstrate her commitment to using her public office to promote an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to reform the terribly flawed campaign finance system in our country.

Sarah, a graduate of New Mexico State University, has a strong passion for social justice and public service. She went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Management from Carnegie Mellon University Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy. After Heinz College, Sarah has worked as a non-profit fundraising consultant.

About her decision to sign the Pledge, Sarah stated, “Money should never be a barrier to running for office, and yet it is, because of the exorbitant amount of money poured into present day elections. I believe it is truly detrimental and goes against the core principles of a functioning democracy. The only way to restore a government truly of the people, by the people, and for the people is to pass the 28th Amendment, and set limits on the amount of money you can raise and spend on elections. Because everyone matters equally and corporate influence should never supersede people.”

Let’s all thank Sarah for her commitment to democracy reform! Sarah can be reached at sarahguzman4santafecountyclerk@gmail.com.
